    If a window shatters in the middle of the UA, can anyone hear it?

    A woman reported that a house on campus had one of its windowpanes shattered on Wednesday.

    The woman, who worked for UA Facilities Management Grounds, told police she discovered the broken windowpane in the courtyard earlier that morning. The officer inspected both the window and the house, though he did not find anyone inside. The time frame of the incident remains unknown due to the fact the house has been vacant for several months.

    At this time there are no suspects, witnesses or evidence.

    Not a drive-by, the bullets weren’t fired

    A UAPD officer was walking through a parking lot just west of the police station on Wednesday at 9:35 a.m., when he noticed an unspent round of rifle ammunition lying on the ground. The officer picked up the round and secured it at the UAPD station.

    The round appears to be of a .223 caliber gun and has markings on the back that say LC-07.

    The round was lying in the road and was partially smashed and dented, apparently run over by traffic. It was placed into property and evidence, with a request to have it destroyed.
